Some officials are recommending that Aspen adopt the Idaho stop.

Aspen Assistant Police Chief Bill Linn said the “stop-as-yield approach” has proven to work in states such as Idaho, which changed its law allowing cyclists the option to yield some 30 years ago. A 2008 study by a University of California at Berkeley researcher showed that in Idaho, police and motorists have accepted the measure as public policy that makes sense. Boise, which has a large percentage of regular bicyclists compared with motorists, has become safer as a result of the change, the study concluded.

Inexplicable burst of rationality.



Good Quote

“The two Liquigas guys were screwing around the whole day, that was the most frustrating part,” Lewis told Cyclingnews. “The rest of us were rolling around good together. Fortunately we dropped the guys we wanted to and then, unfortunately, Nibali came back, so that was frustrating, but we still managed to keep it fairly fast. We hung on for as long was we could, but spending all day out there at this altitude, always uphill and there was a lot of wind, it really takes it out of you, especially after yesterday.” (Craig Lewis)

But it was all for nothin’ as the peloton swept past on the final hill.

The two-pass Stage 3 tomorrow. Lot of hunger in this race right now.
